Otie is currently curled up and purring, making it hard to believe that he was previously just another lonely cat looking for a loving home. But that’s precisely how his mother, Alyssa Keeling, came across him when she went to her neighbourhood animal shelter.
According to Keeling, “He was obviously depressed,” The Dodo. But he also had a strong personality that could not be contained.
Otie was in a bad mood. Then everything was different.
Keeling chose to open her heart to Otie even though his gloomy demeanour at the shelter may have turned off some prospective adopters who presumed he would be an unfriendly pet. She soon became aware of Otie’s actual character.
“When he moved into his new house, it was like a switch had been flipped. Otie woke up, according to Keeling.
She created this endearing video to show Otie’s transformation, which is a touching example of what love can do for a dejected shelter cat:
